DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. November 22, 2016, 4:04 PM (IDT)

A school and a number of homes have burned down in the Givat Eden neighborhood of Zichon Ya’acov, a small hilltop town south of Haifa, as high winds carry woodland fires into the town. Five people were treated for smoke inhalation, including three children. Parts of the town have been evacuated and highways closed around the town. Fire fighters brigades have come in from neighboring towns helped by airplanes to fight the flames. . Smaller fires erupted in other parts of the country due to unusually high winds and dry weather conditions.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
